at the latest poll and saying in this latest poll obama is up by 7 in iowa. i wonder if he'll hold on to that lead until election day. but now you look at the polling in iowa and say obama is up by 7 in iowa and people are voting in iowa as of this week. with early voting, every day from now until november 6th is election day. that not only saps some of the value out of the debates, which start next week, it also undercuts the potential potent si of october surprise. in the associated press write up of this early voting phenomenon this year, the write up, they quote a professor who is an expert on election statistics. if you have the game changer, you've got to do that soon. if you wait until the weekend prior to the election to release your stink bomb, you've lost coloradans, and he's right. that's one of the battleground states where most ballots are expected to be cast early. by election day, colorado will already be mostly decided. so if you're losing today, at this point in the campaign, hurry up and fix it. mitt romney's campaign adviser said back in march, remember, the etch
. let's check the "hardball" scoreboard. according to a new battleground poll, president obama has a three-point lead among likely voters. 50% number, a key number, obama, 50%, romney, 47%. let's go to the issue of the debate. mitt romney seems to have changed his tune on health care. here he was on "60 minutes." >> does the government have a responsibility to provide health care to the 50 million americans who don't have it today? >> well, we do provide care for people who don't have insurance, people -- if someone has a heart attack, they don't sit in their apartment and die. we pick them up in an ambulance and take them to the hospital and give them care, and different states have different ways of providing for that care. >> that's the most expensive way to do it. >> well -- >> in the emergency room. >> again, different states have different ways of doing that. >> it's interesting the people who don't have health care live in apartments. that may be his latest etch-a-sketch moment. listen to what he told mike barnicle a couple years ago on "morning joe." same question, same sub
ffrtt-two campaigns are pulling out all the stops in aa effort to get a leg up in the polls. polls. president obama delivers two high profile speeches - first &p at tth clinton global eral iniatiie where the foccu shifted from foreign ollcy in rrlation to the middle eass traficking. obama says: "our message to them today to those around thee world is wee ear you. ww see you.weeinsist on heir dignity." his apearance came just hours afferrrepublican rival miit rrmney spoke from the same stage. romney says: believe america's strategy should be to secure our the campaign criticisms were muted ttere wassa lightee mention of the race.rrmney says: "if there's one thing we've learned ii this election season,,by the way, it's that a few words from bill clinton can do a man a lot of good," polls show since the convention president obama noww slightly leads in three coveted battleground states - virginia..floridd and ohio. kkff says: "we have t at 5 points and the washington post has a new poll and has it at 8 points." the repubbican ticket hit
points. the trend in polling in that state, all the polls, obama is way, internal polling has obama ahead in the mid to high single digits. today ohio does not look the same as florida, for example. florida looks like a true toss up. colorado looks like a toss up. nevada. ohio, by the numbers does not and i would say and we've talked about this, without ohio there are scenarios mitt romney can be elect elected president in terms of winning 270 electoral votes. he needs ohio or i needs to find a way in some combination of wisconsin, iowa, michigan or pennsylvania. >> before i let you go, jeff, jump in here as well. paul ryan has spoken out on that incredible missed call at the end of the packers/seahawks game. the nfl is saying they stand by the call, at least roger goodell is under a lot of pressure. this is paul ryan in cincinnati. >> going to start off on something that was really troubling that occurred last night. did you guys watch that packer game last night? i mean, give me a break. it is time to get the real refs -- >> he went on to make a point, critical of president obama. but l
the obama campaign is struggling to win the support of a key voting bloc. military veterans. one recent poll. take a look at this, shows governor romney with a double-digit lead among veterans in three states. in florida, mitt romney is up by 20 percentage points. another study, including third-party candidates finds the majority of veterans and military families in colorado favor governor romney. you can put that first screen up again, and we will discuss it with chris stirewalt. before we put you on screen, a 20-point advantage for romney in florida, 12 points in ohio and 12 points in virginia, all among military veterans. can you tell us, chris, what is going on? how is the voting bloc? >> i'm sure that many viewers like you put things back up now. the true picture is, florida, virginia, north carolina -- these are states with very substantial veteran and military populations. republicans generally do better among those who have served in the military. john mccain did not do quite as well. when you look at the narrow states come in there. if things get out of whack for the president with
because this campaign isn't being designed by foreign policy and most polls have shown obama has a nice cushion there, and i think because mitt romney has had his own fumbles, if he could show more competency on these other issues, the voters might give him he benefit of the doubt. in our own political, georgia washington survey today, you see the president expanding the lead. >> eliot: david was being nice he hasn't just fumbled the football here. we all remember the era when we did feel as though we were under siege, will they have any traction on that issue? >> it doesn't seem likely. think of how -- you know how he fumbled this thing with israel. one of our allies instead of our main ally come on. if it was syria, then yeah that would be a bad screw up, but come on. >> eliot: i agree this is parsing syntax that shows how desperate the other side is. and david, so let me come back to you, that's what i continue to marvel at. mitt romney has not given the speech that i thought he was going to give. when will we hear that? >> he is running out of time here. the nex
. obama leads romney 49-42 among nascar enthusiasts, according to the new zogby poll. can you explain that? >> because thurston howell doesn't drive a car. it's that simple. nascar is a down home sport. elitism is not tolerated. its roots go to rural america and rural america -- look where i'm from, hillbillies, hillbilly land. i told many people we're ego maniacs with inferiority complex. we tell people we're great but in our hearts we may not believe it. elitism, that's what it's about. who can feel anything in common with mitt romney? and, i mean, he just doesn't connect with that world. as far as any marketing that they're trying to do in nascar, it's a waste of time. >> now, steve, is that the problem, the feeling of elitism? he is not the kind of cozy, likeable guy, and then on top of it, his posture and his policy smacks of elitism across the board to a lot of americans that don't usually agree on a lot of politics? >> yeah. i mean, we've seen evidence of this already this year. we saw evidence of it as far back as the republican primaries, the south carolina primary where romney lo
george washington university poll puts president obama at 50. mitt romney 47. that's among likely voters. the rasmussen daily tracking poll has the president with 47. governor romney 46. dead heat. that's good news for the governor because he was suffering over the 47% remark. joining us now from washington. fox news senior analyst brit hume. when you were listening in the break. brit and i were just talking. you picked up something in the juan and mary katharine segment. which was that? >> which was during the clinton administration, after the big washout for the democrats in 94. latter stages of his first term early part of his second term he cut the capital gains rate. i don't remember the date exactly when it happened cut it down to 20%. prelude to the booming economy we enjoyed in the latter part of his presidency. that, of course, was also the period when we had this gusher of tax receipts that led us into surplus. bush the younger cut it again. down to 15 and they had the highest revenues ever under that. so, i think we have made a convincing argument here tonight that all of this
to the november election, please. president obama still has the lead over mitt romney in most of the polls. the president's appearances on shows like "the view" give mimm a wide audience, a wide appeal of the cross section voting of the public. and the rnc reince priebus joins us now. welcome back. the conventional wisdom is that mitt romney has had a horrible week and yet, he's not really behind that much in the polls. and here we have the president going on "the view" and going on letterman. is it possible that governor romney is just too nice and not playing good politics? >> well, you forget about obama's important interview with pimp with a limp as well, so you've got to add that on to the list. you know, i think that this president's engaging in sort of an american idol type campaign and i think at some point, he's going to have to get serious about being a leader of this country. i mean, today, for example, as you alluded to-- >> wait a second. i hate to interrupt the man who runs the republican party, but his policy, the strategy of president obama, he's winning. he's taking attent
aside, and no entity. obama is ahead. all the polls in the key states, the battleground states, obama has a lead as well. the markets discounted an obama win, and as a result, this bullish for risk, and for oil as well. >> how high do you continuing crude could go? >> i think $96, $97. not because of an obama victory, but because of bifurcation economically around the world. oi. the split side, what happen fist we can have a romney victory. >> i think oil rallies in either case. if romney wins, it rallies more, because romney victory is risk conducive which would send oil higher. >> ho how big is the uncertaint? >> much less than a few months ago. the morkt has begun to sdounlt an obama victory. not because of political uncertainty, but more because of economic certains. >> once we get beyond the election, what will be the driver for crude? >> economic growth, hands down. fi. we look at the crude contracts >> one of the benefits of trading crew, is you can trade it on the front months and also the supply and demand five, six, sen, eight years down the road. if you look at crude now, 1
poll of polls the average among the most recent polls in florida, 49% for obama, 45% for romney. the question to you, john, can romney win without winning ohio and florida? >> in a word, wolf. i took a walk over here to show. the answer is no. you just mentioned ohio and florida. states the president carried four years ago. states governor romney very much needs to win this time. go to the electoral map to show you why. final six weeks, 237 electoral votes strong or leaning the president's way. these are the toss up states. the golden states. forget the rest of them. if the president can keep that lead and carry florida, if the president can keep that lead and carry ohio, the race is to 270, wolf, that would be in two words game over. >> gloria, if you look at the strength that the president has in these states, you see something fascinating. >> it is. i call it the empathy question. which candidate is seen as advancing the interest of the middle class? you see the president up by 25 points on that question in florida, by 19 points in ohio. and that is of course what people vote
states, the latest battleground poll shows president obama up over romney in virginia by 8 points, up in ohio by 5 points, up in florida by 5 points, up in iowa by 5 points. up in nevada by 5 points. i was looking at some others this morning here, enough, just up by 1 point. colorado up by 2.3 points. so it's looking pretty good. here's another indication in the latest battleground poll. this was conducted by politico and paid for by politico, sponsored i guess by politico and george washington university. shows that 60% of americans today say they think president obama's going to win re-election. 60% think -- whether they want him to or not think he's going to. 30% only think mitt romney is going to win. 10% are undecided. so everybody sort of feeling like this election now is going in one direction. everybody that is except two people. paul ryan and mitt romney who told an interviewer yesterday hey, polls don't mean anything. >> polls go up and down and there's some polls that are out there where the race i
, colorado. he's looking for votes in the battle ground state where a new poll shows president obama has the edge. romney pounced on the president's 60 minutes interview where he used the phrase bump in the road to talk about recent events in the middle east. >> these are not bumps in the road. these are human lives. these are developments we do not want to see. this is time for the president who will shape events in the middle east, not just be mercy full or being mercy of the events in the middle east. >> that assertion is both desperate and offensive. the president was referring to the transformations in the region. >> the president's campaign is rolling out a new ad attacking romney for saying 47% of americans who don't pay federal income tax see themselves as victims. the ad is airing in ohio. >>> strong desert winds are fueling a deadly wildfire out west. that fire is ravaging is small town known as campo east of san diego and minutes from the mexican border. the fire broke out yesterday. no word on how it started but the flames already wiped out 20 homes. firefighters found a body

of it. joining me is howard fineman and joe klein of the times. let's take a look at the two polls. the two key states ohio and florida. according to "the washington post," president obama has a four-point lead over mitt romney in florida. four points down there in a very tough state. 51%,/47% for obama. in ohio, the president's lead is a more comfortable eight points. that's dramatic. howard fineman, thank you for joining us, and joe klein of "time" magazine. thank you. it strikes me the numbers i put out tonight, and i'm going to get all through them, shows a party obliterated to reality. she don't seem to watch the news. don't seem to know the huge fight that went on when we realized there was no weapons of mass destruction in iraq. that was the whole reality we lived in, the disillusionment on the right, the confusion in the middle, the anger on the left. they didn't even experience that period of time? >> well, chris, to put a charitably, i think the republican party today is the nostalgia party. that was my sense of it having kind of marinated in their world view down in tamp

. if you look at the gallup poll of approval of reagan and obama, you will see they're the closest of any two presidents in the last 50 years except that reagan sank lower in his first term than obama ever did. he went down to 35%. and obama's highs are less high. so it's still a struggle, i agree, but i think what obama has been able to do is say, look, i'm not giving you sugar high morning in america. i'm telling you, we're gritty, back to the basics, rebuilding america, and i know it's tough, but that is finally a different kind of message. people realize that reagan's recovery was the sugar high, and we still had to deal with its debt. >> well, the question i have -- first of all, i'm not sure you're right because paul volcker was appointed fed chair by jimmy carter and he began squeezing the money supply under carter, i know about it, i was there. >> but the recession started in '81. >> you call the misery index. obviously, the strongest element in the misery index right now is the unemployment rate, up around 8.3. inflation doesn't help getting rid of it politically if it isn't arou
